Rugby League: Leeds put unhappy Holroyd on the transfer list

Click to follow
Leeds have put their goal-kicking half-back Graham Holroyd on the transfer list for pounds 195,000 after he asked for a move. The 21-year-old kicked the winning penalty against Halifax on Wdenesday, but has been unhappy at being used largely as a substitute since the arrival of the club record signing, Iestyn Harris. Holroyd has already been linked with Sheffield Eagles and Richmond rugby union club, but both will find the price prohibitive.

Leeds prop Barrie McDermott will be out for six months after breaking his leg and fracturing an ankle in last night's victory over Castleford at Head- ingley. McDermott has had a pin inserted in his ankle and a plate put into his leg, and misses the Test series against Australia.

Wigan and the London Broncos are playing for second place in the Stones Super League Championship when they meet at The Stoop tonight. Both are 10 points behind the Bradford Bulls with a match in hand.

There will be two familiar English faces in the London line-up, with Shaun Edwards and Martin Offiah facing their old club.

Although the London coach, Tony Currie, is keeping quiet about some positional switches he has in mind, he will have his captain, Terry Matterson, available. Matterson has withdrawn from the Scotland squad to play France in Glasgow next week because of a nagging calf injury, but will be patched up to face Wigan, who have Paul Koloi on the wing in place of the injured Andy Johnson.

John Duffy, the 17-year-old Warrington scrum-half who has just recovered from a broken leg, has been added to the Scottish squad.
